We just spent one night. The owner's were very friendly and helpful. Our room was at the front and was a bright pink and 'frilly' that was a bit overwhelming especially for my husband. The bathroom was tiny. As we were near the road is was quite noisy throughout the night. There was free long distance to the US and... More

Thank you for your kind words about us (the owners), free long distance phone calls and our good breakfast offerings. However,we are disappointed that you weren't too happy with your room. The decor is definitely very feminine, bright ,cheerful and frilly. I can certainly understand how it wouldn't be your husband's taste. I personally am the decorator, the one that... More

The hotel was very comfortable, albeit a bit chintzy in the rooms, That said we had a great nights sleep, it was quiet and comfortable, and easy parking. Wifi was a bit poor, although in the morning it was better. Alas the coffee was not so good in the room or at breakfast. A reasonable choice at breakfast including homemade... More

Thank you for your review and happy to read you had a comfortable stay. I actually had to look up the word "chintzy" as I am not familiar with it, eventhough we are also from across the pond. From what I read this is a popular word that you use in Britain. However, it's not a very complimentary word and... More

We stayed in a motel room with a king bed. Room and bathroom were very small, but clean. Decor was over the top frilly (I never saw so many decorative pillows)! Breakfast area was also small, but offerings were good. The beach access is a short walk down the highway from the main hotel complex. This property is convenient drive... More

As always, a clean quiet place to stay on coastal Maine. I have been coming here for years as a great place to rest and relax from a stressful job. First discovered it on a family vacation about 20 years ago and when in the area, I make it a point to stay here. Can't beat it for value, cleanliness,... More

We stayed at the Claddagh Motel overnight on our way to Mount Dessert Island. Our room, a King Room with a water view, was clean and comfortable. One needs to keep in mind that this is an older motel so the rooms and bathrooms may be smaller than one would wish for. However, for the location, the price, the cleanliness... More

While traveling in New England over the past few years, I've gotten the opportunity to stay at the Claddagh Motel multiple times. Each visit was a wonderful experience.

I think that we got the only room left for that night, room 103. It was small and the bathroom smaller. Kitchenette area was tight, and I kept hitting my head on the microwave mounted high on the wall. The grounds were well kept and the pool was nice.

Thank you for your kind words pertaining to us, the owners, the grounds and the pool. We are very sorry that you found the bathroom/kitchenette very tight.
